:D

First of all, I'd like to say : MERRY Christmas & Happy new Year

I have 2 LCDs, I got them from broken telephone sets. I can't understand what are the function of each pin. I couldn't find any datasheet for them.
The 2 LCDs are different.

I'll really appreciate your help.

Thanks

Re: LCD Help ..... plz

They seem to be specifically build for telephone sets. HK or HKS may refer to the hook switch. Others signals as SDI and ClK suggest a serial interface. And 12/24 the time format for the clock display.
It is strange that in the 2nd photo there is no VSS connected.
I would try to follow the connections of the LCDs to the phone sets. If you have an oscilloscope you can check what is going on on the serial data lines. If a scope is not available you can use a simple logic analyzer that uses the parallel port of a pc.

LCD Help ..... plz

Thanks for your replies, but what about the other pins.???

Could anyone tell me, How to do the following:
" I want to activate the lcd and send any digit to it using a microcontroller. I think SD1 or D1 are for the data."

Thanks again for your help.

You are going to have to check for a part number on them then locate a data sheet online.

VDD should be power and CLK would be your clock input.
